    Pros

    Independence in most situations to start programs that address community needs. Ability to live and integrate abroad.

    Cons

    The relationships with site organizations seem to take precedence over volunteer compatibility.

    Advice to Management

    Therapeutic counseling is needed for volunteers as many of the more difficult challenges are psychological. Administrators should be trained more often.

  2. The toughest job....
